Make sure the butter and egg are room temperature.
Sift together the flour and salt.
Cream butter and sugar in your mixing bowl until light and fluffy.
Do not skimp on this step or the cookies will be very dense.
Followed by the egg and mix well until incorporated.
Next, add the cornstarch and flour. Do not over mix once the flour is incorporated.
Bring the dough together and divide into three pieces.
Add gel food color to each - I used pink, fuschia, red and natural.
Roll and bake
Roll dough on a lightly floured surface.
I rolled my cookies a ¼ inch or 6 mm thick using a rolling pin with spacers.
Cut out desired shaped cookies and place them on a cookie sheet one inch apart.
Bake cookies for about 8 to 10 minutes depending on the thickness of the cookies.
When baked let cool on the tray for 7 to 10 minutes then transfer to a cooling rack to cool further.
This recipe can be doubled or more without any issues.
The dough can be kept in the fridge for up to 4 days, or Frozen for up to three months.
If frozen thaw in the fridge over-night before you roll out.
